You can call it the draft lottery if you want; I choose to call it the Anthony Davis Sweepstakes. The Draw for the Unibrow.

After some coins were tossed and some ties broken, we have the NBA lottery odds and draft order for the June 28 draft. (Enjoy the irony of the future of so many players and franchises taking place in Newark, a city the NBA has deserted.)

Here it is, the first 14 teams have their odds of winning the lottery next to them (the lottery takes place May 30), from 15 on it is the draft order.

1. Charlotte 25%
2. Washington 19.9%
3. Cleveland 13.8%
4. New Orleans 13.7%
5. Sacramento 7.6%
6. New Jersey 7.5% (if not top 3 this pick goes to Portland)
7. Golden State 3.6% (if not top 7 the pick goes to Utah)
8. Toronto 3.5%
9. Detroit 1.7%
10. New Orleans 1.1% (via Minnesota)
